has been so much a part of america's history, which is our willingness to invest in the future. that investment is in our children, all children, including poor children, and modern infrastructure, in research, blue sky research. and i think that is, when we get beyond the challenge we face over these next two weeks, i think that's going to be a broader challenge we're going to face. >> we have time for one more question, over here. i just want to say how much support the president has on ensuring fair balance and -- [inaudible] >> richard with trust met andy. so we are basically a biomedical company that helps doctors collaborate better using social media. and i want to ask a question about crossing the valley of death. so our company is very fortunate that we got a small amount of innovation funding from health care their monies. but it's really a broader questions about the health care ecosystem. in silicon valley a company goes under, software engineers find new jobs in a matter of weeks. but in biotech we have people, a lot of people with ph.d's and they are much more long
cliff today, but gun violence is another area in america where it seems we can't have a discussion without delusional claims of overreach and taking away hunting rifles. congress won't even allow statistics on gun violence to be gathered, and we certainly have made no progress towards closing the gun show loophole. i come to the floor with a small array of hope. with nearly half of all military sue sides are committed with privately owned weapons, the pentagon and congress are moving towards establishing policies to separate at-risk service members from personal private weapons. congress is poised to enact legislation to end a prohibition about the military collecting information about firearms kept at home. these are simple commonsense steps for an armed services where more military personnel take their own life than who die in battle. perhaps if we can take these reasonable steps to protect our servicemen and their families, perhaps we can have the courage to treat the epidemic of gun violence with the same thoughtful small steps when it comes to protecting the rest of our famili
in america. >> that's inexcusable. i don't disagree with that. >> it is inexcusable. i just wonder about the double standard. tearing down tents, punching people. really, i don't understand. mike, can you explain this stuff for me? i believe i've said it on the show time and time again, unions, after world war ii, helped create strong, vibrant middle class. >> yeah. >> we talked to steve rattner about jobs coming back to america at 14, 15, $16 an hour. we don't celebrate that. i'm glad they're here instead of china, but heck. if we had an economy that would support $30-an-hour jobs, i'd be for that. better than a ceo. you know, destroying a company and then getting a $200 million payout. but that said, what is wrong with a state allowing an american to work where he or she wants to work without having to be compelled to pay union dues? >> well, this state, michigan, was such a part of the core of unionism in this country, the foundation of the united automobile workers which at one point had over 1 million workers in its enrollment is now down to roughly maybe 350,000 workers. the united

action. viagra. talk to your doctor. see if america's most prescribed ed treatment is right for you. >>> we are a government of laws, not of men. those are the words of associate justice to the supreme court, antonin scalia. scalia said that and a whole lot more during a headline grabbing appearance at princeton university that included a q&a session with students. it was then scalia was asked about his past writings on gay rights, including a 2003 case, lawrence versus texas which likened sodomy to among other incomparables, bestiality and incest. in that high case the court ruled that states can not outlaw sodomy among consenting adults of the same sex. disagreeing, scalia wrote in part, texas' prohibition of sodomy is unsupported by a rational relation to a legislate state interest nor denies the equal protection of the laws. emphasis added. i dissent. scalia continues the texas statute seeks to further the belief of the citizens that certain forms of sexual behaviors are immoral and unacceptable. the same interest furthered by criminal laws against fornication, bigamy, adultery
cheer is now a crime scene. goods morning. well come to the breaking news coverage on "america's newsroom." i'm bill hemmer. nice to see you, martha. terrible story. martha: terrible images. watching people walking out with hands over their heads. good morning, everybody, i'm martha maccallum. here's the story. the shooter killed two people before killing himself. another victim we know this morning remains in critical condition. she is fighting for her life at this a witness saying quote, he had the look of death in his eye. bill: we're also hearing more about the terrifying moments inside the mall. people ducking for cover. hiding in store aisles and shielding their young children. >> my friend was already on the ground, you know, crawling toward the doors. i heard two more shots. i jump on the ground crawling toward the door. i heard this guy yell, get on the ground, get on the ground a couple times. i got up and i just started running. bill: it is believed the gunman entered the popular mall through the macy's department store before going on his rampage in a food court. da
and had 92 e-mails. some from people all over america. the story was picked up by the associated press. i had an e-mail from someone in arizona, alaska, everywhere in the country. on campus though, i have received such supportive comments. it's been really helpful to me. it was a very courageous thing. it took a lot of courage on my part. it's something i was really nervous about doing. something i thought that maybe i wouldn't do. and it's also important to point out that i don't understand why conservatives like scalia don't support gay marriage because i think gay marriage and gay rights as a whole are really consistent with conservative values. conservatives believe in promoting marriage as the bedrock of our society. if we want to pro mote marriage, we should hay low more people to enter it, more people who are committed to each other, who want to make sacrifices to each other. more people who are willing to, you know, spend their lives in these committed relationships. that is a conservative principle. and ultimately i think that that in itself is consistent with conservative values
